  1. This new forum is not tablet friendly... But yeah, the death rate in Northern Italy is currently at like 6.5 %... and this is when they feel they are still able to treat everybody who needs treatment, which they estimate they might not in two weeks. Finnish govt is in full ”we should only be afraid of panic” mode. Advised by the local health authority - staffed with people who believe that limiting access to alcohol will cure all ills - who just a month and a half ago said the disease would not hit Finland at all. As an added bonus, gf (who I haven’t seen in a week and a half due
  2. Day 3 of mandatory WFH due to going abroad to help my mother just when SHTF. They’re sending me the stuff drafted by the most retarded associates, probably because they can’t hear the groans as I have to redo everything. Ah well, I got slightly into prepping a couple of years ago when I lived about five hours from anybody I know, so I have enough stuff I like to eat to last me a couple of weeks without having to leave the apartment once.
  3. I could recommend the same to you, with a side of reading comprehension.
  4. Eh, plenty of time to die of exposure here in the time it takes for rescue to arrive, even with the warmer winters these days.
  5. Yyyyeah, not quite that this time around. More like "the society collapsed and only you, your go-bag, assault rifle and light machine gun can restore order to the world, one punk and one block at a time". I find it highly therapeutic, but can't ignore the judge, jury and executioner stuff from professional viewpoint. In fact, it might be the whole reason I enjoy it!
  6. Picked up the Division 2 now that it was on sale for a fiver. It's a lot better than the original, which I also enjoyed for the fascist power fantasy it was, but which also had an absolutely terrible endgame. Only reached the max level a couple of days ago, but the content seems a lot more solo friendly vs. raid after raid in comparison to the original. Yes, I have no friends, at least none who would play games with me Only bad side I can find about the game is that the plot must be incomprehensible to anyone who did not play the first one, unless there's an in-depth backstory intr
  7. I've had both done and personally found the endoscopy a lot harder due to an extremely sensitive gag reflex. Good idea I didn't want to become a gay porn star. We've had some threats at work due to a few recent high-profile cases, so decided to pick up one of those smaller crazy prepper bags that can be used as a shield with a body armor panel. Nothing like tax-deductible toys, I guess. Probably going to pick up some type of rudimentary satellite communication device like the Garmin Inreach ones for me and my parents., now that my paranoia levels are suitably elevated.
  8. Went out with the lady friend, who'd really dolled herself up for my birthday. Not sure if it was entertaining or upsetting seeing people's reactions... their jaws slacked a bit when they saw her, and then completely dropped when they noticed who she was with. Sigh. #battingabovemyleague I guess.
  9. Managed to get the permadeath mode and (finally, after three tries) the no alarms trophies for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Hope there is more DX coming, the prison DLC IMO really showed how good the team was. Then found out they were flogging The Division 2 for a fiver, so segued to that. Have done more gaming over the past month than in the three years before that :D
  10. Not much sense in spending time talking about games when you're not gaming.
  11. I'm currently in the ~past six months vs. today mode... So for the past six months, I've been slowly learning how to do 3d character art. Started with daz studio, now slowly taking the next step with Marvelous Designer et al to do some more Cyberpunk-y gear for my characters. Steep learning curve as I have no background for this kind of stuff whatsoever, but I've been enjoying it so far. Too bad most of the software costs so much I can't afford it (cough, zbrush) even with lawyer salaries, so I have to use stuff apparently designed by aliens (Blender) which lacks some newbie-friendly feat
  12. Started gaming again a couple of weeks ago, after an almost 3,5 year break! So far the most enjoyable thing has been the replaying of the Criminal Past DLC for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (one of the few things I had played during the break, but not getting to really enjoy it properly). It's really, really good. It's funny how they managed to do some of the most "deus ex" areas (palisade bank, PenT House), yet managed to make most of the main game side quests feel like cubicle slavery. I still think the main game was heavily cut in a final rush, even the loading screen suggests an eleme
  13. So, yes. I was asked about Necromunda in the old thread but the lock beat me. I, indeed, play with Escher as my main gang. I’m also the campaign arbitrator, so I have genestealers, squat venators and soon will have enforcers I use occasionally in that role. Two weeks from holidays, looking forward to a break. Now watching Firefox. Cold War ftw.
  14. Pool of Radiance Curse of the Azure Bonds Secret of the Silver Blades Baldur’s Gate Baldur’s Gate II Deus Ex Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear Street Rod 2 Hard Drivin’ Street Fighter 2 Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
  15. I came back to visit the Obsidz board for a change... I’ll try to come back a bit more, maybe. Haven’t done much gaming in the past couple of years. Started working out seriously and painting miniatures (mostly Necromunda). I find it’s a lotmore efficient as stress relief. Really busy in real life these days. Can’t pretty much say what I do in any detail I could accidentally dox myself for the Finns. Litigation with a lot of high profile cases, probably at the top of my career.
  16. Do you mean ”Murder at Baldur’s Gate”? That was the turd of an introductory adventure where they canonized Abdel, who then went out like a punk on the first page. I have 15 feet of d&d books on my bookshelves, that one was the last one added to the list. This: https://dnd.wizards.com/products/tabletop-games/rpg-products/baldursgate_descent is the new, yet-unreleased one.
  17. Wizards is also releasing an adventure in Baldurs Gate this year. Heavy Bhaal iconography, but same ”far in the future, nothing to do with the original” deal going on. Probably based on that schmuck Abdel Adrian being canon, too. I’ll keep an eye on this but assume it’s an attempt to cash in on my nostalgia.
  18. ”Generally, the only way a vampire changes generation is through diablerie. When a Cainite diablerizes a vampire of lower generation their generation decreases by one or possibly more if the victim was particularly potent. There are other, much rarer, methods of changing generation, but they usually involve powerful sorcery and are closely guarded secrets.”
  19. It's been months since last purchase... I was thinking RDR2, but just based on the previews it seemed like the kind of game that everybody else seems to love but that feels like work to me... am I wrong, is it ungrindy?
  20. The downside of Saints playing well is that I can't basically see any games live due to the time difference. However, it's a downside I find I'm able to tolerate quite well with the upsides :D
  21. I think it was Watch Dogs 2 from some summer sale. And I'm not sure I've even installed it.
  22. Two months into a ”sober six months”. So am drinking mostly water and coke zero, with occasional treats of coke lime...
  23. Not much, tbh. Went to buy some food for next week, tried to agitate people to vote for a lady friend in the Maxim cover girl competition, watching some Packers at Lions and decided to drop by at the Obsids forums fir a change.
  24. At least we have the all-white saints color rush uniforms to look forward to.
